Professional Network of San Clemente Hosts Thomas Mauriello in Presentation on False Claim Act “Qui Tam” Suits

On May 24, 2012 Thomas Mauriello gave a presentation on the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) before the Professional Network of San Clemente, a business and networking association of prominent South Orange County professionals in a variety of fields, including law, accounting, wealth management, veterinary, real estate, business consulting, and insurance.

In his presentation, Mr. Mauriello provided an overview of the FCA, as well as case studies from his own practice and from other FCA suits. In these suits, which are also known as “Qui Tam’” suits or “whistleblower” suits, a private individual acting on behalf of the U.S. government may sue companies for fraud or theft committed against the federal government.

In a successful judgment or a settlement, the government may receive up to three times the actual amount by which the defendant defrauded the government, as well as other damages

The FCA also creates a strong financial incentive for whistleblowers who have personal knowledge of fraud on the US government to report that fraud. A plaintiff may receive as much as 15% to 25% of the penalties recovered in an FCA lawsuit.

If you are a whistleblower who has been employed by or otherwise has personal knowledge of a company who has defrauded the government, the Mauriello Law Firm has substantial experience with False Claims Act (Qui Tam) cases and would be pleased to discuss your potential case.
